This place does a good job of giving us the basics in life: wings and pizza with soft drinks on the side. My favorite wings: lemon pepper.

This is the original Fuel location inside of an old service station. The pizza here is good and Dairy Queen is right next door so dessert is convenient too!

They have a great variety of pizza by the slice or the whole pizza along with other dishes that are simply delicious.

I love love love Fuel pizza, especially the Midwood area. The pizza is great, large slices and crunchy crust-New York style! Nice large slices that are great for folding, with a little grease dripping...just like a New York slice from Manhattan.

Got to give it up for Fuel Pizza on Central. Always come through with a great late night pizza. I tend to do pickup instead of delivery b/c they can get real busy late night but its close to the house so I don't mind....More

If you're looking for late night food or just a great slice of pizza, Fuel has that old-style pizza that really hits the spot. Indoor and outdoor seating.
